Lots of doooooom and glooooom on this rather active and interesting forum so

Best bit of advice you have ever been given, probably better sailing related 

Will start with two (from the same person at different clubs and a few years apart)

  • Pull the the Cunningham on when tacking an IC
  • Join in the racing, it makes you go where you donít want to go
